The slowest rate of plate movement can be seen in Artic ridge. It is less than 2.5 cm/yr.
The plate marked red colour in the world map is
The Nazca Plate, named after the Nazca region of southern Peru, is an oceanic tectonic plate in the eastern Pacific Ocean basin off the west coast of South America.
According to the Plate Tectonic concept, how many major plates are there?
On Earth, there are seven major plates and many minor plates. Where plates meet, their relative motion determines the type of boundary; convergent, divergent, or transform.
The boundary in the given picture shows the
A very deep oceanic trench is formed next to a high continental mountain range when the oceanic crust is diving under the continental crust at a convergent boundary.
The continental drift theory was propounded by
Alfred Wegener—a German meteorologist put forth a comprehensive argument in the form of “the continental drift theory” in 1912.
The Rim of the Pacific is also called

India was a large island situated off the Australian coast.
Tillite is formed due to
It is a sedimentary rock formed because of the glacier deposits.
What is a tectonic plate that lies between the Asiatic and Pacific Plate?
The Philippine Plate is an oceanic tectonic plate, between the Pacific Ocean to the east and Asiatic plate on the west.
A tectonic plate is a slab of
A tectonic plate (also called lithospheric plate) is a massive, irregularly-shaped slab of solid rock, generally composed of both continental and oceanic lithosphere.
